Historical Perspective in Principles of Cloning
Foote, Robert H.
Cloning, or asexual reproduction, is the typical way that simple organisms reproduce. However, mammals normally cannot reproduce asexually. This chapter is part of a book that traces the development of a limited understanding of cellular regeneration that led to the cloning of adult mammals. An explosion of research with stem cells and related areas has followed. This research is designed to understand cellular differentiation, and use this knowledge with the potential of greatly advancing medical practice.
